New Westlaw Browser Policy

Are you unable to access Westlaw? It could be because your browser is no longer being supported by Westlaw and that you need to upgrade your browser to a newer version.

As of January 10, 2009, Westlaw has a new policy regarding which browsers will work with their service:

Westlaw access will be blocked when using Web browsers that are no longer supported by the companies that created them. The lack of support can create problems during Westlaw development which may result in a security risk. Users attempting to access Westlaw using one of these browsers will receive an explanatory message that offers alternatives.

Westlaw access using the following browsers will be blocked:

  • Netscape (all versions)
  • Mozilla Firefox versions lower than 1.5
  • Safari versions lower than 2.0
  • Internet Explorer versions lower than 6
If you need help upgrading your browser, please contact the IT Department.
